         I’m free

      Don’t grieve for me, from pain I’m free

          I’m following the path

               God has laid, you see.

        I took His hand when I heard His Call

              I turned around and left it all.

             I could not stay another day,

               To laugh, to love, to work or play.

                 Tasks left undone must stay that way,

                I found the peace on a sunny day,

             If my parting has left a void,

                Then fill it with remembered joys.

                  A family shared, a laugh, a kiss,

                 Oh yes, these things I too will miss.

                  Be not burdened with times of sorrow.

                 I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.

                     My life’s been full,

                   I’ve savoured much, 

                 Good family, good times,

                    A loved one’s touch.

                     Perhaps my time seemed all too brief.

                  Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.

                Lift up your hearts, and peace to thee.

                   God wanted me now;

                   From pain I’m free.
